European tradition meets western modernity with Monkshine, an approachable adaptation of the classic style brewed in Belgian monasteries. Rejoice, fellow admirers of Belgian ales, for there is Four+ Monkshine.

DuffMan (9611) - the land of bitumen, beef & beer, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 2, 2013
Bottle. Lightly hazy blonde, estery yeasty aroma, a little sweaty. Rustic yeast guides the palate, sweet pale grains, a little marzipan. Not bad.

phaleslu (9427) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - MAY 13, 2012
12 oz. bottle from Public House in the Venetian. Served in a tulip. Pours a clear gold with a small white head. Aroma of lemon citrus, apples, grapes, apricot, candi sugar, grass, and straw. Flavor of straw, apples, grapes, wheat, grass, bready malts, and a metallic note late. Light-bodied, with moderate carbonation and a mouthfeel that starts juicy and ends dry and metallic. Odd beer.

3fourths (9150) - Boulder, Colorado, USA - JAN 12, 2005
Draft at the brewery in SLC. Dark orange and clear color with a large white head. Nose is sweet bananas and bubble gum with some artificial sugar and candy notes as well. Light and crisp, a bit of a sweet yeast bite present. Some bubble gum and soap with the banana flavor... watermelon and peaches as well. Artificially sweet and cloying. Unbalanced sweetness but still a commendable effort for keeping it at 4% ABV.

UPDATED: JAN 2, 2009 Bottle. Pours a light gold with a decent head. The flavor is smooth fruit with a earthy malt. A bit hoppy and spicy. A decent brew, too light though. Relaxing and smooth, just too thin. This rating is for the older 4% version, and the beer has changed a good bit since then.

blipp (8275) - La Mesa, California, USA - APR 29, 2012
Bottle at the TURD tasting. Pours gold with a white head. Light lemony fruity aroma. The flavor has a grainy base with light lemony notes. Not bad.

Ibrew2or3 (8207) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - JUN 24, 2009
Courtesy of douglas88. A Belgian Pale Ale, eh? Let’s see. It pours hazy deep gold with thin white head. The aroma emits cloves, grains, banana, yeast, spice, a touch of grapefruit and coriander. The taste is an even balanced mix of cloves, yeasty spice, banana, sweet tangelo, faint grapefruit, ripe green apples and a light coriander note. Into the finish it dries up a bit while grainy malt notes come to the surface. Well executed and refreshing brew.
